RE: [IxDA] Is there a formal UCD process?

Hi Alice,

Last year I published a paper titled "User-Centered Design, Activity-Centered Design, and Goal-Directed Design: A Review of Three Methods for Designing Web Applications."

The paper gives an overview of each method's foundations, processes, and key deliverables.

I'd be glad to send you a copy.

Core77 equivalent for interaction design?

In the industrial design world, http://www.core77.com/ is the 800-lb gorilla of industry news, information and cool stuff. In interaction design, it's obviously the IxDA list, but its not quite the same since it's user-generated content, versus more of a news bureau approach.

Mozilla Design Challenge: Fall '09 %u2013 Mozilla Weave Project

@joe - As Andy says, the goal of the Sync add-on is to allow users to
take their entire firefox experience with them, anywhere they go. So,
in addition to bookmarks (which are certainly a big part of one's
firefox experience), we also securely synchronize web history,
passwords, tabs, preferences etc.

Our goal is not to compete with other services such as delicious, but
rather work to better integrate with whatever services a user chooses.

Hope that helps clears things a bit.

Re: [IxDA] Interaction Design course at Cooper

I've done the Usability Week courses with NNg and found them amazing.
I would disagree with Hilary in they do run courses and workshop intensives a lot to take in if you are a beginner.
I did do the Usability Week interaction intensive and got so much out of it.My learning took an exponential leap and continues to be a grounding in interaction design principles from Tufte to Deyfuss to Fitz.

Modeling the users


My collegue and I have used Cooper's Interaction Design method in order to
model our Intranet users. Our objective was only to model them.
Now, we are writing our report and some people ask us why we choose this
method and not another one. However, I did some search on Google and I
didn't find other methods that allow to model the users.
So, could you help us to find other methods? And why these methods are
different from Cooper's one?

Balancing brainstorm participants

Hi Everyone,

Thanks so much for your help on my question regarding studio orgs, amazon is
rushing me your recommended resources. I have another question for which I
could use some pointers/resources, etc. How do you balance the conversation
when participating in a larger brainstorm or design meeting? How do you make
sure you benefit from quieter folks' opinions, stop the louder folks from
dominating the discussion, reduce interupting, etc.
